Puerto Aventuras dive guide


Puerto Aventuras diving has excellent beach diving and something for everyone as the dives range from shallow reefs to deep wall and canyon dives which are all accesible within very short boat rides.

The water is crystal clear and teeming with marine life. Close to shore the reef drops to 20 feet/6 meters leading to a long sand patch at about 40 feet/12 meters which eventually runs into a pristine reef with a depth of 40-70 feet/12-21 meters.
Dive operators in Puerto Aventuras offer outings to he famous Tortugas Reef where divers regularly encounter turtles, barracudas and (depending on the season) schools of giant tarpon.

Right in Puerto Aventuras you can dive the Cenotes which have the reputation of being one the worlds finest fresh water caverns can be visited. In the jungle there is crystal clear water (visibility above 150 feet/45 meters) and incredible limestone formations - all immersed in a magical play of sunlight. The Cenotes are large and cathedral like.
There is Incredible coral formation, very good visibility and lots of fish at the south end of the island where divers can dive the the famous Palancar, Santa Rosa, Paraiso or Las Palmas reefs.

Not to miss is the whale shark outing organised by dive operators from Puerto Aventuras to snorkel with the The Whale Shark, the largest fish in the sea. The whale sharks come to Holbox Island off the Yucatan coast where the Gulf of Mexico waters and the waters of the Caribbean Sea merge. This nutrient rich (plankton packed) area is where Whale Sharks come to feed in the months of July and August. This “plankton bloom” provides the environment for Holbox to have the highest concentration of whale sharks in the world. This is really an extaordinary experience not to miss.
